Our two-day workshop in youth development in Arts will be of immense benefit to our young generation. Arts can save lives. Arts can turn around a troubled teenager; get young men and women off the streets into creative and constructive pursuit. Art can change attitude, build self-esteem and redirect the path of wayward, art can also prevent despair. The workshops will engage young men and women into a more meaningful way to look inside themselves to rediscover their potentials.
